Omni Foundation for the Arts presents International Guitar Night

Martin Taylor
Brian Gore

January 26, 2013  

International Guitar Night is North America’s premier mobile guitar festival. Sponsored by Acoustic Guitar Magazine, it is the only production of its kind to have grassroots origins. Ever since its beginning in 1995 in a converted laundromat in the California Bay Area, IGN has featured the best performing guitar composers from around the world. Since the beginning, audiences have cherished the friendly informal ambiance of the performances. Participants have relished the chance IGN affords to express reverence for one another, and to collaborate rather than compete. The unique brand of “guitar positivity” the forum provides has helped make IGN the most successful guitar showcase of its kind.

A master of the 12/8 Salegy rhythm.

Martin Taylor is one of the most awesome solo guitar players in the history of the instrument. He’s unbelievable.

Gore’s finely crafted poetic ‘songs without words’ take the listener on a spellbinding, emotional ride.

With the International Guitar Night, Brian Gore has created a new niche for the myriad of styles that can be played by the unaccompanied acoustic guitar, as well as marvelous opportunity for virtuosos to interact and learn from one another onstage.
